How To Confront And Cross Examine Incompetent Marxist Educators

“There are many questions that can be used to plant a stone in the shoe of students while undermining the efficacy of the indoctrinator who is posing as an educator. In fact, I have several that I provide for students who are forced to take the classes taught by the committed Marxists in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at UNC-Wilmington (where I teach).” 

(Mike S. Adams – Daily Wire)  Each summer, I spend several months at Summit Ministries in Manitou Springs, Colorado. While I am here, I give pro-life lectures as well as lectures on student free speech rights…. Continue reading

What Every American Should Know About The Assault On Chick-Fil-A

“The superficial reason for the bans against Chick-fil-A is a ThinkProgress report that criticized the owners of the restaurant for their private donations to the Salvation Army, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.”

(Craig Huey – My Christian Daily)  Across America, Chick-fil-A is under attack…

Schools, airports and cities are trying to ban the chicken restaurant.

Why?

Because its owners, who are Christians, make private donations to pro-life, pro-traditional marriage organizations. Horrors! Continue reading

Newest target of Left is biggest one of all: your marriage

“Such a liberal view of sex and relationships didn’t happen overnight: the American Psychological Association was on board in the 1970s when the similarly named American Psychiatric Association, bowing to pressure, dropped homosexuality from its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It had been included as a mental disorder in the very first DSM published in 1952.”

(Charlie Butts & Billy Davis – OneNews Now)  The professional association that bowed to pressure from homosexual activists during the 1970s is now advocating adultery among married couples. Continue reading

Holy and Blameless

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. (Ephesians 1:3-5 NASB)

For what reason did the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ chose (elect) all in Christ before the foundation of world? It was that they would be holy (ἁγίους) and blameless (ἀμώμους) before him…. Continue reading

Repentance and salvation

19 Therefore, repent and turn again in order that your sins will be removed. Acts 3:19 (translated from the NA28 Greek text) 

One form of religion that claims to be Christian but isn’t is based in something called “easy-believism.” On the other hand, many of the proponents of it will point to what we call “the Gospel” in what follows as the “damnable heresy” of Lordship salvation. I have often shared here using passages such as Acts 3:19 (above) making it clear that the Bible tells us that there is no salvation without repentance and again in Acts 2:38…. Continue reading

Epstein, Bean & Buck: The Democratic Donors’ Sex-Creep Club

“Bean wriggled out of prosecution by publicly dangling $220,000 a cash “compromise” with the alleged victim, who then suddenly refused to testify against him. A judge in the county where the politically influential Bean family reigned, promptly dismissed the charges. Case closed? Not so fast.”

(Michelle Malkin – Daily Wire)  Well, well, well. “Follow the facts,” Democratic strategist Christine Pelosi now advises fellow liberals in the wake of billionaire and high-flying political financier Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex trafficking indictment this week. Some of “our faves” could be implicated in the long-festering scandal, the Pelosi daughter warned, so it’s time to “let the chips fall where they may.” Continue reading

Why Do We Need Creeds, Confessions, and Catechisms?

“A creed or confessional statement gives clear affirmations of what a church believes, and equally clear denials of what that church does not believe. Without this clarity, it is all too easy to sneak false teaching into the church, or to fail to give people the full counsel of God from the Scriptures.”

(Jacob Gerber)  By the grace of God, I grew up in churches that loved the Bible. I have vivid memories of hearing God’s word read, sung, and preached every week. I memorized a good portion of the Bible through AWANA. I still remember specific things I learned about the Bible in Vacation Bible School and Sunday School lessons. In high school, I was introduced to a regular Bible reading plan that I have used since 2000. Continue reading

Papal Paganism’s Kiss of Death

This most recent Interfaith attempt will celebrate Masonic and Islamic Sufist paganism infused by South American primitive animism and witchcraft. It is little wonder that the world-renowned Austrian Catholic philosopher, Dr. Josef Seifert (pro-life author of many noteworthy books on Catholic doctrine), seeing what the Pope is doing, has signed a petition calling on the bishops of the world to “investigate Pope Francis for heresy.”

(Peter Jones – truthxchange)  Pope Francis is walking away from most forms of historic Roman Catholicism, taking countless followers with him. Obviously Protestants do not accept works righteousness, the divinization of Mary, papal divine inspiration and many other Roman Catholic doctrines…. Continue reading

Jesus Christ is the True Vine

1 “I am the true vine and my Father is the vinedresser.” John 15:1 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

In John 15:1, we have our Lord’s last of His seven “I am” sayings signifying His claim of deity. The word “true” in v1 translates the adjective ἀληθινὴ, which is nominative, singular of ἀληθινός or alēthinos, “unfeigned, trustworthy, true.” The nominative case form, ἀληθινὴ of ἀληθινός means that the metaphor our Lord is making of Him being the “true vine” is subject to the main verb in the sentence with is εἰμι, which, of course, means, in this context, “am.”….

Founder of Young, Restless, and Reformed Movement Trashes Calvinism as ‘Garbage’

“Mark Driscoll, who spent his life at Mars Hill preaching and defending Calvinism, actually says that he doesn’t hold to the five points of Calvinism because they’re “garbage” and “not biblical.” What’s interesting is that his doctrinal shift (a term that keeps popping up lately) didn’t happen until his fall.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  One of the most notable problems within the Young, Restless, and Reformed (YRR) New Calvinist movement is the tendency to be tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine…. Continue reading

Better gear up for the 5 major changes coming to the Church (Reprise)

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

This article by CRN managing editor Marsha West was first published May 25, 2015.

John Burton has written a piece titled “Ancient and Emerging: 5 Major Changes Coming to the Church.”  Before you get all excited, or maybe even concerned over those changes, you should know a bit more about Burton.  As it turns out he’s a “prophet” in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement.   According to his blog, John Burton, he “has been developing and leading ministries for over 20 years and is a sought out teacher, prophetic messenger and revivalist. Burton has authored ten books, has appeared on Christian television and radio and directed one of the primary internships at the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City.”

That Burton was associated with IHOP-KC could only mean that he has served under IHOP’s Pied Piper Mike Bickle.  I spent quite a bit of time researching Bickle for a piece I wrote and discovered his strong ties to the NAR or what some refer to as  Dominionism.  Also identified was his involvement with the Kansas City Prophets (KCP).  According to Pastor Ken Silva, the KCP:

brought grandiose claims that a ‘new breed’ of super prophets were beginning to arrive on planet earth who would change the world forever. These so-called prophets were a group of men that coalesced around a church known as the Kansas City Fellowship, pastored by Mike Bickle, that attracted a following of other likeminded churches in that region. (More on the KCP here)

It gets worse.  Mike Bickle believes that God speaks to him in an audible voice.  But here’s the kicker.  He has visited heaven – twice.  On one visit he told false teacher Bob Jones: Continue reading

Petition Launched After Amazon Pulls a Number of Books About Leaving Homosexuality

Author Joe Dallas told The Christian Post that he believes the removals are a precursor of what is to come. “Amazon’s decision is no surprise since today’s culture is caving to the goals of the LGBTQ political movement, which have always included the silencing [of] any disapproval of homosexuality,” he said.

(Heather Clark – Christian News Network)  A petition has been launched after the popular marketplace site Amazon pulled a number of books on leaving homosexuality — some that could be considered “conversion therapy” books and others that were simply writings from those who were delivered from homosexuality by the power of Jesus Christ. Continue reading

Beth Moore Labels Christians Against Homosexuality, ‘Hyper-Fundamentalists’

“While some of us aren’t afraid of the term “fundamentalism,” for many evangelicals the term has a negative connotation. Essentially, Moore is insulting those of us who have a Biblical sexual ethic and is implying that we are all stuffy, KJV-only, kill-joys and party-poopers.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  In a continued social media meltdown, similar to the one that had the unstable and hysterical feminist take a break from Twitter back in May, Beth Moore labeled Christians explicitly opposed to homosexuality “hyper-fundamentalists.” Continue reading

Having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

In this post we will look at Romans 4:13-5:1 which is the application of the theology that Paul presents in Romans 3:20-31, which could be summarized with the statement, “By works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight since through the law come knowledge of sin, but the righteousness of God is manifest through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.”…. Continue reading

Does Beth Moore really believe that homosexuality – not just the behavior, but the identity and desire – is a deadly sin?

“It is no secret that I have very serious concerns with Beth Moore. Many, many people do. Even if she were to (finally) make a strong and clear affirmation of what is truly a Christian sexual ethic on this issue, that would certainly be a welcome development but it would not allay the concerns with her poor hermeneutics, her allegorizing of scripture, her false claims of God speaking to her, her false claims of God giving her visions, and her endorsements of known false teachers. Those concerns are real and remain outstanding.”

(Justin Peters – Justin Peters Ministries)  I want to share my thoughts regarding Beth Moore’s blog post from July 6, 2019, in which she addressed her removal from her book, Praying God’s Word, (PGW) a 6 page section in which she described homosexuality as follows: Continue reading

Drag Queen Story Hour is ‘Indoctrination’ of Children Into LGBTQ Culture

The left is willingly now putting these children in harm’s way. They are not telling them the health risks, the immense health risks of homosexual behavior. So many issues on just health alone, not to mention morality and where the souls of these children are headed, if they’re promoted into this sinful lifestyle.”

(Michael W. Chapman – CNSNews)  The spreading practice of men dressed in drag reading to very young children in public libraries — and in some Barnes & Noble book stores — is a way to “indoctrinate” kids into the LGBTQ world and imprint “perversion” in their young minds, said Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. He added that the entire experience is “like mental rape.” Continue reading

The Forgotten Facts about Michael Brown of Brownsville

“While speaking at that Jerusalem gathering, Michael Brown proceeded to tell the attendees that “tonight,” that night, would be a “history-making” night insomuch as the Holy Spirit would descend in power and fire as earth-shaking and monumental as the literal day of Pentecost detailed in Acts, chapter 2. On a video of this speech in the presence of Israeli Messianic leaders including such leading scholars as Dr.  Arnold Fruchtenbaum who all witnessed the false prophetic predictions, Michael Brown went so far as to interpret the national disaster of forest fires destroying 20% of Israel’s reforested land as emblematic of the outpouring.” 

(Sandy Simpson – Deception In The Church)  Dr. Brown has been making the rounds of evangelical church gatherings and conferences presenting himself as an authority on Judaism and the truth of Scripture…. Continue reading

What is Living Water?

10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you, ‘Give me to drink,’ you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water.” John 4:10 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

Sacred Scripture clearly teaches us that those who are saved by God believe in the Lord Jesus, that is, they believe the Gospel or Good News. It is good news because it comes to those who realize they are helpless to justify themselves before God who is Holy, Righteous, and Just and also know for certain that their own righteousness is as filthy rags, that is, worthless. The good news is that someone else has paid their sin debt to God for them…. Continue reading

Can We Slow The Speeding ‘Trans’ Train?

“Once upon a time, when children were confused about gender, doctors adopted a “watchful waiting” protocol, knowing that the child’s confusion might be caused by trauma, unresolved emotional issues, other developmental struggles or family problems. There was reluctance to rush into prescribing puberty blockers to be followed by opposite sex hormones and then, mutilating surgery, all severe treatments with lifetime implications.” 

(Linda Harvey – Mission: America)  I have a dream.

In my dream, hundreds of parents, doctors, counselors, and pastors are protesting outside children’s hospitals throughout America. Continue reading

Fleeting Depiction of Lesbian Mothers in ‘Toy Story 4’ Characterized as Being ‘Subtle to Desensitize Children’

“Here was a major family-friendly film, one of the biggest Disney Pixar releases, and they included a lesbian couple with their son. It’s a small moment of normalization, even if it’s minor”

(Heather Clark – Christian News Network)  The quiet and fleeting depiction of lesbian mothers in an opening scene of “Toy Story 4” is being praised by homosexual advocates as a “small moment of normalization.” However, the cursory inclusion has also raised concern among some family groups who opine that it is a “subtle [way] to desensitize children” to homosexuality. Continue reading

The Plan

“Led by Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, this plan has now been embraced by the Democratic Party.  Joe Biden gives lip service to parts of the plan but really doesn’t buy it.  Therefore, Biden must be destroyed by the cadres who endorse the plan.”  

(Bill O’Reilly)  You should know that some powerful people like radical leftwing billionaire George Soros, and others who believe as he does, have a plan for your life.

Of course, they would never state that plan, because many Americans would recoil from it…. Continue reading

What is effectual fervent prayer?

16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16 (NASB)  

16 Confess, therefore, to one another your sins and pray on behalf of one another so that you may be cured. The petition of a righteous man, being effective, has great power.  James 5:16 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

I have received many requests through many different channels from brethren who desire to know how to stand firm in these last, dark, and evil days…. Continue reading
